AIDA tour operator solution updates

Changes in service special offer calculation mode

Previously, when a service special offer type Early Booking or Rolling Early Booking was used with reduction from the supplier price, the Agency Commission and Reseller Commission values were not affected, they were related to the standard supplier price.

With this new version, for Special Offers/Service special offers, the calculation mode was changed. For Early Booking and Rolling Early Booking special offer type, if a reduction from the supplier price is applied, the Agency Commission and the Reseller Commission are calculated related to the new supplier price.

Cloning accommodation service restrictions
 

Previously, when an Accommodation service was cloned, the price sets restrictions were not cloned to the new service and were added manually.

With this new version, when an Accommodation Service is cloned also with prices, all the restrictions from the price sets are cloned for the new service, irrespective if it’s cloned to the same project, a different project with the same start and end dates or if it’s cloned to a project that is scheduled to start in the future.

New option to add multiple periods for cancellation policies

Previously, when a cancellation policy was added or edited, only one period could be added. This new option applies to all cancellation policies options: Service, Packages, Projects, Package special offer and Service special offer.

With this new version, in Projects/Project components – Penalties, a new option is available to set multiple periods for cancellation policies. This option is useful for the situations when the same cancellation policy is valid for multiple non-consecutive periods.

User groups for managing project access
 

Previously, for each new project added in AIDA, the users that have access at project level as administrator or moderator were added manually for each project. Each time a new project was added, the same operation was made. For the clients that have up to 30-40 users that need to have access at project level, this is a time consuming operation. With this new version, in Admin/Users, a new option is available: Users groups. Using this option, the projects administrators or moderators can be added in a group, without the need to select manually user by user for each project. The group to which a user belongs is selected as user level. A user can belong to more than one group, without limitations. After the users group is added and all the necessary users were selected, based on the role that should have at project level, as administrator or moderator, the users group can be added. All the users that are added in the users group are set to have project access as administrators or moderators.
